I am both a qualified commercial and domestic heating engineer with 40 years experience in the field. I set up an independent heating design consultancy in 2014 after designing & installing plant rooms & systems for most of my career ( www.robberridge.co.uk ) and am now fully engaged with this and my heat calculation software company with two other directors. After coming off, ‘the tools’ for some eight years now and designing many plant rooms and systems for my new clients, I bring a unique perspective that bridges the often large gap between installation engineers and architects/building services engineers. Offering fully scaled CAD drawings, specifications and tender documents that all parties fully understand has kept me really busy and my life, 'interesting'.
I also offer training courses in building heat loss, system calculation and specification to which I partner with IMI-Hydronics.
My main focus is system design and efficiency, whatever the heat source or fuel type and I have no personal affiliation with any. I believe in accountability and lobby to move our industry away from its long tick box culture. Low temperature system design is a speciality.
